    I wonder if that Oil is gone too?

      Somehow I missed that diary. USF and Woods Hole are the only institutions that have been public about being involved in large scale subsea testing. I trust scientists at both.

      The Woods Hole forum explains how they used a fast AUV as an oil "sniffer" which allowed the research vessel to take many, many more relevant samples. Woods Hole doesn't make the claim but use of these types of AUVs seems to me to be a game changer in science better understanding undersea plumes.

      NOAA's public statements have been a huge disappointment.
